It is with great sadness that the family of Jason Earl Gilchrist announce his passing on June 26, 2020. Jason was born on July 20, 1977 in Silver Spring, Maryland to Vicki and Lafayette Gilchrist. He was a graduate of the University of Maryland and held various positions throughout his career in the fields of accounting, property management, and security investigations.

Jason was gifted with the biggest heart. He loved his family and centered his world around making sure that life was a little easier for others. He loved to laugh and could turn the most frustrating of situations into something funny, and then put life into perspective of what really mattered the most. Spending time with family and showing how much he loved them was a huge priority for Jason. He was a gentle, compassionate, patient and generous spirit. Being an organ donor, Jason performed his last selfless act. He always saw the bigger picture in life and never took a day for granted. He brought much joy to those whose lives he touched and was deeply loved. Jason will be painfully missed by family and many friends.

Jason is survived by a daughter, Mikayla Stewart; parents, Lafayette and Vicki Gilchrist; brothers, Aaron, Warren and Lafayette Gilchrist; sister and brother-in-law Tracee and Thomas Foster; nieces, Carlee and Camryn Foster; significant other, Patrice Brown (and Charlie); and a host of loving relatives and friends.

A private memorial will be held July 14, 2020, at Fort Lincoln Funeral Home in Brentwood, Maryland.

For my cousin, Patrice, to share anything about the person she was dating I knew Jason had to be special.

Heaven has clearly gained an angel and while they rejoice to welcome him into eternity, I pray God’s peace and comfort keep those who loved him most here on earth.

My sincerest condolences,
Carla

When Patrice announced she was bringing the guy she was dating to the house for desert, I said to myself "Wow, she must really like him." And when Charlie, who doesn't like ANY guys except for Eugene, cuddled up with Jason and Jason let him, I knew he was a great guy. There are people in the world who radiate kindness, thoughtfulness, and genuineness, and Jason was one of them. We never had to worry if our friend Patrice was safe, taken care of, or most important, loved, because we knew she was with Jason and that was a given. Patrice, I can't imagine how you must be feeling, but know that the love you and Jason shared will be with you always. We love you and will be here for you, whatever you need. To Jason's family and loved ones, we are deeply sorry for your loss and will continue to pray for your peace and comfort.

Our deepest sympathies,
Lauren, Emmerson, and Eugene Harris

Jason was a family man who adored his entire family. He loved his nieces Carlee & Camryn Foster so very much. He attended Carlee’s basketball games with his dad and Camryn’s gymnastic meets with his mom, all the while giving his sister Tracee A loving I’m proud of you look.

Jason and Aron would would wear their Santa hats assisting their mom and dad with the many, many, many Christmas gifts for the girls. Uncle J was very generous and made sure Carlee was loaded on her birthday and Christmas (just a few days apart), with a crisp $100 bill on each day. Uncle J would smile and say she can buy what she wants. Jason loved so much his Mom & Dad brother Aron and His only sister Tracee who he was very close with. Jason took on his role as big brother with much pride.

Jason , I asked my brother Roland to meet you at the gate so that you wouldn’t be alone. I know the both of you will continue to watch over the girls as they grow. How lucky
are they to have had two loving uncles who are now their loving angles. Oh yeh, keep your eye on the rest of us too, because life without you here on earth is going to be hard.

Just knowing that you are resting in God’s hands, will allow me to smile when I think of you.
My deepest condolences to the Gilchrist/Foster Family. Love Always, Michelle Thompson❤️❤️

A Poem For Jason

Although, I didn't know you very well.
The times that we spoke and saw each other,
one could tell, that he had a kind and gentle spirit.
He took the time to share some of his thoughts and
feelings, and listened to better understand yours.
At times, when I would call to speak to his dad,
he would linger a while , and a good time was had,
before calling his dad to the phone.
We laughed and engaged in thoughtful pleasant
communications about our family.
This will be my thoughts of him in remembrance,
Peacefully,
Aunt Rose
